Snowleader, an e-commerce specialist in mountain sports equipment, has recently inaugurated its cutting-edge logistics centre in Versoud, Isère. Spanning an impressive 25,000 square metres, this state-of-the-art facility marks a significant milestone in Snowleader’s commitment to providing top-quality service while prioritising environmental sustainability.

In their quest for an energy-efficient lighting solution, Snowleader turned to TRILUX, renowned for its innovative approach to illumination. TRILUX’s comprehensive turnkey solution, encompassing luminaire supply and installation, lighting management, monitoring, and financing, perfectly aligned with Snowleader’s vision for their new logistics hub.

Specialising in the distribution of ski and mountain equipment, Snowleader aspires to be a frontrunner in online outdoor retail while maintaining a strong environmental ethos. The launch of their new distribution centre in Isère, equipped with an automated storage and retrieval system (AutoStore), underscores their dedication to operational excellence and eco-friendly practices. This facility, four times larger than its predecessor, is poised to process an impressive 350 parcels per hour, with plans to dispatch one million parcels annually within the next three years.

The heart of Snowleader’s sustainability efforts lies in its lighting infrastructure upgrade. TRILUX replaced outdated iodide luminaires with 400 MIRONA FIT LED luminaires, renowned for their durability and efficiency in demanding environments. Boasting a service life of 100,000 hours even under high ambient temperatures, the MIRONA FIT LED ensures both longevity and cost-effectiveness. With a remarkable energy efficiency of up to 170 lm/W, Snowleaderanticipates over 84 per cent in lighting energy savings, facilitated by the LIVELINK light management system. This means that the system pays for itself after just 32 months, allowing Snowleader to finance the new installation with the savings achieved by LEDs.

Mr. Jérémy Tourn, Facility Manager at Snowleader, remarked, “The intelligent and user-friendly LiveLink system makes our everyday operations much easier. In addition to being easy to use, it provides the right light for every requirement, for example, by defining specific work areas, programming schedules, and much more, while giving us a comprehensive overview of our lighting installation.”

TRILUX’s LiveLink Premium offers tailored lighting management for large-scale projects, ensuring optimal efficiency and transparency. By networking high-bay luminaires with presence and daylight sensors, LiveLinkPremium optimises energy consumption while providing real-time data on relevant operating parameters.
